Does MSM Really Work?

We are passionate about health and feeling/living the best we can, without harming the environment and innocent animals.
MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is a product that is growing in popularity for its numerous health benefits.
What is MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane)?
MSM is an organic sulphur compound that’s naturally derived during the earth’s rain cycle. Sulphur is present in many natural unprocessed foods, but it’s quickly lost during the cooking process.
Research shows that it may be helpful in reducing joint pain, lowering inflammation, improving skin health, decreasing allergy symptoms and speeding recovery after exercise.
We decided to put it to the test!
One of our Nurcha Tribe members put their hand up to take MSM every day for three weeks and see what benefits they received.
According to the MSM Guide, Human studies have shown that MSM enters the blood very quickly! It will start working within 30-45 minutes and most people will begin to notice the effects of MSM within two weeks (but individual results may vary).
Here’s their experience…..
“When Nurcha asked me to take MSM for one month I was actually really excited! I’m really passionate about health and well-being and I’ve never tried anything like MSM.
A lot of people told me the taste was the worst part but I didn’t actually find it that bad! I could barely taste it once it dissolved into my water. You could definitely have it with juice if you found the taste really bad too!
I started off with half a teaspoon and then amped it up to one teaspoon by the end of the three weeks. I wanted to ease my body into it.
Just like anything new, creating a new habit and routine at the start is the hardest part. Actually remembering to take the powder in the morning was harder than the taste!
After a few days, my habit started to kick in and I was on a roll! It was actually really nice forming a new habit that I knew was going to be good for me. It was like a little bit of self-love even before I received any actual effects.
At the end of week one, I hadn’t noticed anything physically different but week two was a completely different story!
Kicking off week two in full force I was struck down with some sort of flu/virus. A build-up of emotional and physical stress took it’s a toll on me – finally. I hadn’t been sick in over A YEAR.
MSM is known for detoxifying the body so I thought it could be interesting to see if it helps with my sickness!
One of the most important features of MSM is that it makes your cells more permeable. Meaning that it allows toxins and metabolic waste products to easily be moved out of the cells. While essential nutrients and hydration can move in. Being a calcium phosphate dissolver, it has a remarkable ability to break up the bad calcium that’s at the root of degenerative diseases.
I kept up with my MSM intake while I was sick and ended up only feeling flu-like symptoms for 2 days, by the third day I could already feel my immune system rebuilding and becoming strong again.
Week Three was amazing! Although the effects where subtle my hair started to feel softer than it had in a long time. My nails were growing (this is rare for me) and my overall energy was thriving!
Collagen and keratin and both essential for the production of healthy hair and nails. MSM is a “beauty mineral” that provides the sulphur needed to produce collagen and keratin. It’s also noted to contribute to the strength and thickness of the hair and nails this can be noticed in just a couple weeks of consistent use.
I already have a pretty clean diet and take good care of my health but the only thing I directly changed over the 4 weeks was my MSM intake. Personally, I also found that my recovery from my gym/yoga training improved dramatically. Normally I would be sore for a good few days after a heavy sweat sesh but I found that I was hardly sore at all.
MSM increases the ability of the body to eliminate waste products at the cellular level. Speeding up recovery and freeing up more energy for rebuilding.
The effects that I received in the past four weeks from implementing MSM were subtle but definitely note-worthy! For something so simple to add to your daily diet, there’s nothing to lose!
I’ll definitely keep using MSM in my life daily and continue to see the benefits it can provide.
We hope you enjoyed our little real-life experiment with MSM. If you’ve tried it please let us know your experience!
